The perfect double feature with 2015's Spotlight, this is another great modern contemplation on God, faith/lack of faith, and DOUBT (haha get it??????). This is a soft period piece that works in almost any time period yet I think works so well due to it not being set in the present, lemme explain. Because this film is set in 1964, scandals regarding Catholic priests molesting children were not as widely known as today, making the allegations against Father Flynn that more egregious and makes the tension of this film skyrocket. This movie does 3 things really well, acting, tension, and cinematography. I don't believe this film gets enough credit for how well it shot, and I think it should Roger Deakins deserve more praise for what he did with this movie (with the other two aspects, I believe they are pretty self-explanatory).
Adjective: Tense and well shot
